The Kienbaum Blog: From experts to experts


Leading a Virtual Organization

28 May 2020 - As the whole world is undergoing a shock, we all have to adjust our ways of doing business, accelerating digital ways of working and leading teams and organizations at a distance. And although there is physical distance, these trying times can bring us even closer together. We would like to share with you some of the most interesting material we have come across, drawing from our own experience at Kienbaum as well as the plethora of information available online.

Building agile teams in times of crisis

23 April 2020 - Enabling agile collaboration requires more than rolling out Slack or Microsoft Teams: Now more than ever, organizations are in need of enabling their workforce and teams to be agile. People Analytics and social network analysis can help.
Across the globe millions of white-collar workers are sent home to work remotely. With no change in team structures, leadership, process- and project management, many of those teams are doomed to fail.

Organizational Network Analysis – Case Study

2 April 2020 - Even though Organizational Network Analysis (ONA) has been named one of the biggest trends in people analytics, the amount of use cases available is surprisingly low. Used right, ONA can be a scientific method to measure previously hidden organizational KPIs and at best, provide a completely new perspective on organizations. At Kienbaum we have used ONA to understand and visualize the effect of our very own organizational transformation. We aimed to break silos, empower collaboration and facilitate the exchange of knowledge.
